Dress to Impress: Flatter Your Body Type

Okay ladies. Moment of truth time! 

Women come in a variety of shapes and sizes! There are many different body types out there and you don't have to be an airbrushed magazine model to dress fashionably and look fabulous in real life. The trick to making fashion work for you is learning which trends you can rock! In order to know what wardrobe pieces will accentuate the absolutely gorgeous physical traits you possess, you first need to figure out the answer to the most important fashion-related question you'll ever ask.

What is my body type?

There are 4 main types of body shapes that women come in, apple, pear, hourglass, and rectangle. Some women may even fit more than one of these body types throughout different phases in their lifetime. A number of factors such as pregnancy, childbirth, hormone changes, weight-loss, weight-gain or surgery (if one so chooses) can alter the shape of the body. I've gone from a rectangle shape before my first pregnancy, to a pear while pregnant, then to an hourglass through breastfeeding stages, back to a pear, back to an hourglass, back to a pear... I have lots of kids.
